[Bug 974455] Re: [Lenovo IdeaPad U300s] 't' key sends "Hiragana-Katana"


Thank you for your update Christopher.

I worked around the problem by draining the battery, as described in
more than one post above. This was many months ago, and since then I've
not had the problem again.

I won't be updating my BIOS any time soon.

  [Lenovo IdeaPad U300s] 't' key sends "Hiragana-Katana"

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since booting today, my laptop's 't' key (physical) does not function
  correctly. Instead of sending the correct keycode, it sends
  "<Hiragana-Katakana>. I use a dvorak keyboard layout, so it ought to
  map to 'y' for me.

  jpds reports that cparrino has had the same issue on nearly-identical
  hardware, and that the key also does not work in grub.

  He also provides this work-around:

   $ xmodmap -e "keycode 101 = t"

  Which only works in qwerty. Use "keycode 101 = y" for dvorak.
